PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Police outside Philadelphia have released video showing a man overdosing on heroin on a crowded transit bus and being revived by police officers carrying a lifesaving drug.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says 25-year-old Michael Meeney was arrested early Tuesday, almost five days after he was treated with Narcan on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority bus.
The department posted edited video of the overdose and revival on its Facebook page Tuesday.
Meeney is seen shooting up, looking dazed and then collapsing into the aisle. The video, recorded Thursday, cuts to the bus empty of passengers and officers administering the Narcan spray. It then shows officers escorting him off the bus as passengers applaud.
Online court documents don’t list a lawyer for Meeney.
